What is hard to understand about your desire to attend a conservative Catholic law school? Several of your posts made it quite clear that it was one, if not the determining, factor in your decision.
It's a factor. It's not the determining one most likely, but yeah it's a consideration.
The point that has been made in this thread by nearly every poster is that where legal practice and law school are concerned, there are far more important factors than the degree to which a university aligns itself with your particular ideology.
And this is something that I haven't disagreed with. The way it was expressed I might take issue with. Usually if the arguments showed little or no though. IE saying Ave sucks with nothing to back it up.
You should be worrying about whether or not you'll get a job after graduation, not whether or not you'll have a chance to attend mass in the main auditorium every sunday, or whether or not your professors agree with you that giving condoms away in Africa to mitigate the spread of HIV is an abomination in the eyes of God. Take the pragmatic approach: Have you looked at the kinds of lawyers the church employs, and where they graduated from? I'd be willing to wager that when all those child molestation lawsuits come knocking, the Pope doesn't draw on Ave Maria grads to staff the legal team, but rather looks to firms employing lawyers who attended heathen institutions like Harvard or Yale. I seem to remember an article about that recently, it might behoove you to take a look at it.
Who says I'm not thinking about employment after graduation? I'm stilled puzzled why people seem so afraid to say screw it, I'll toss the dice and start my own practice. As for other comments I found this to be interesting. --LinkRemoved-- Good thing that they'll go to the firms first. You are spot on about that heathen comment though. I mean with such heathens such as Avery Dulles, and John F. Kennedy graduating from Harvard and that flaming heretic Clarence Thomas graduating from Yale it does appear that the Devil is again loose in New England.
And Batman is way cooler than God.
